The Early Years Foundation Stage
This year is the most important year for the children in igniting a passion for learning, creativity, resilience and the base knowledge to succeed in their education and beyond. We focus heavily on developing the whole child, and we seek to progress the children in all 7 areas of the curriculum. We do this through a play-based curriculum. This is delivered through child-initiated learning through play (independent), adult-led play, adult carpet inputs and focus groups. During the children's play, the staff seek to move the learning on in the moment. This means that the adults will identify an opportunity to extend, support or assess the learning whilst the children are heavily engaged in play that interests them. As well as this, the children are taught how to independently use the resources in the classroom, to ensure that there are fulfilling learning opportunities, even if the adults are not directly working with them. The children receive various short whole-class and group inputs during the day. These include Phonics, English and Maths. We carry out targeted interventions with the children throughout the day too. These include a social and communication intervention called 'Time to Talk', speech and language therapy, phonics intervention, maths intervention and gross and fine motor skills with the PE specialist, Mr Newcombe. 
PE is on a Wednesday afternoon: Children to come to school dressed in PE kit and trainers until further notice.
A reminder that we provide all children with milk and fruit for snack each day. If you do wish for your child to bring a snack in from home, please ensure that it is a healthy snack only. Please ensure your child has a spare change of clothes, wellies and a coat each day. These will need to be labelled to avoid any mix up.

Developing a strong grounding in number is essential so that all children develop the necessary building blocks to excel mathematically. Children should be able to count confidently, develop a deep understanding of the numbers to 10, the relationships between them and the patterns within those numbers. By providing frequent and varied opportunities to build and apply this understanding - such as using manipulatives, including small pebbles and tens frames for organising counting - children will develop a secure base of knowledge and vocabulary from which mastery of mathematics is built. In addition, it is important that the curriculum includes rich opportunities for children to develop their spatial reasoning skills across all areas of mathematics including shape, space and measures. It is important that children develop positive attitudes and interests in mathematics, look for patterns and relationships, spot connections, ‘have a go’, talk to adults and peers about what they notice and not be afraid to make mistakes.
In Reception we use Tapestry for our Learning Journey. Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us.  To learn how to set up your Tapestry account please watch the video below.
